Montrio Bistro

Monterey/Carmel Valley



Located in the heart of downtown Monterey in a beautifully restored early 1900’s era firehouse, with a backdrop of tall pillars, fanciful artwork on the walls, and an ambiance unmatched anywhere, you’re sure to receive many compliments on your rehearsal or reception dinner. This bistro is truly unlike any other. The food is second to none offering locally sourced ingredients and sustainably caught seafood. Montrio is consistently hailed as the best by diners for the last 15 years for its fusion of American, Italian, and French cuisine. Delight your taste buds with over 160 different wines to choose from. The upstairs has two private dining rooms to help accommodate your party no matter the size, and being separated from the main dining room it gives you the privacy you desire.
